Howard County police have arrested a 14-year-old boy in the robbery of a pizza delivery man last month outside a Columbia apartment complex.
The Pizza Boli's in the 7000 block of Oakland Mills Road received an order for an apartment on Gentle Shade Road about 9:30 p.m. May 27. No one answered when the delivery arrived. On his way out, the deliveryman said, someone wearing a mask pointed a gun at him and demanded money and his cell phone.
Police traced the suspect through phone records, serving a search-and-seizure warrant on the suspect's Columbia home Friday. Police spokeswoman Sherry Llewellyn said a BB gun was found at the home. Additional phone records indicate that the boy had tried to set up other drivers in late May, police said.
Police are not identifying the boy because of his age. The case is in the hands of the Department of Juvenile Justice.
